Jessica's celebrating Halloween Amani Style.

Name: Jessica Schachle Lundquist

Hometown: Chattanooga, Tennessee

School & Degree: University of Tennessee Chattanooga Pathway, Bachelor of Political Science: Non-Profit Management (May 2016)

Role at Amani:

I am the Marketing and Resource Development intern. I help out with our social media platforms, writing blog posts, helping in the Chattanooga Warehouse, researching ways to grow our online presence through giveaways and cross-promotional opportunities with other blogs, and generally assisting wherever I am needed.

What made you want to intern with Amani? 

I fell in love with the products of Amani before I even heard about the mission and story of Amani ya Juu. I would see the products around town, in a friend's kitchen, or around a stranger's wrist and ask about it and it was Amani every time. When I finally heard the mission of peace, reconciliation, and empowerment, there was no turning back. I fell in love with the organization and applied just a week later. I am so grateful for this opportunity.

Random Facts: I am a twin, Little Women is my favorite movie, and I drink coffee like it's going out of style

Favorite Amani Product: Lapa Infinity Scarf  

*Jessica was recently hired as our Wholesale Manager! That means her position is up for grabs. Interested? Apply at our website.
